Liver – The Silent Organ
Liver damage usually has mild or no symptoms. Most of the times, liver problems remain hidden until at advance stage as the liver is capable of rebuilding liver cells and continue to function even if up to 75% of its overall mass is damaged.
Fatty / sugary diets, overweight, pesticides exposure, food chemicals and drug reaction are the possible causes to liver damage and may impair the functioning of liver. To cope with the influx of toxins, the liver has to work very hard to keep you in good health. For example, merely to degrade a can of beer, your liver has to work for 4 hours consecutively, forcing the liver to compromise its functions on other activities. Such condition will result in higher metabolic waste being circulated in your system. If you liver turns less effective, damages may prevail. Inflammation and scarring (‘fibrosis’) are liver damages that results in inefficient liver functioning. The untreated degeneration condition will worsen and lead to hardened liver – liver failure, or even liver cancer.
Liver is the crucial organ to ensure toxic waste is removed efficiently and nutrients are channeled to overall body. With more than 500 tasks, liver is termed the ‘Super Organ’ as it supports detoxification, aids digestion, filters body waste, and distributes nutrients.
Functions of liver include:
- Produces bile to aid digestion
- Stores sugar as glycogen as immediate source of energy
- Stores vitamin and mineral
- Generates and decomposes amino acids and fats
- Detoxifies harmful substances that enter your body
- Produces immune factors and removes bacteria from blood stream

LP+Tetsu is a contemporary French-Japanese fine dining restaurant helmed by one-Michelin-star Chef Laurent Peugeot. The menu is strongly influenced by both traditional and modern French and Japanese culinary techniques and ingredients, and given a local twist with the addition of spices and the use of native produce in some of the dishes.
With the innovative use of some unconventional ingredients complemented by an elegant presentation style, a meal at LP+Tetsu is a gastronomic adventure that promises to invoke all the five senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste in a never-seen-before approach in Singapore.
This restaurant is good for fine dining, private dining room, romantic dinner or lunch, business lunch and wine list.
